[video clip] >> there is no quit in america, folks. ladies and gentlemen, that's why i know i'm not the only one who was offended to hear governor romney write off nearly half the country is in his statement about 47% of the people being dependent. if you read the book congressman ryan has written with two other leading young members of the republican party, they talk about -- the title of the book is "young guns," and they talk about this culture of dependency in america without acknowledging that all those people -- of the 47%, 82% to pay federal taxes, the remaining 10% are seniors on social security who don't have to
security? and, yet, was turned down? number two: when asked who would pay more taxes in a second obama term, biden answered people making more than a million dollars or more. totally misleading. the associated press today reports that obama's proposed tax increase reaches individuals making more than $200,000 a year and couples making more than $250,000 a year. and number three, there was biden's defense of the hhs contraception mandate. >> no religious institution, catholic or otherwise, including catholic social services, georgetown hospital, mercy hospital, any hospital, none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. that is a fact. >> laura: false. today the u.s. conference of catholic bishops rebuked the vice president noting that the so-called accommodation, the obama administration promised for catholic hospitals, universities, and other religious charities isn't an accommodation at all. they will all still serve as a vehicle for contraception, abore that face drugs an
